Pattern: My personal pattern.
Needles: #1 (2.25mm) dpns.
Comments: These socks remind me of socks I wore years ago with Red Wing work boots while clearing the woods to build a lake home "Up North." Goodness no, I didn't clear the woods all by myself. But I learned this much: if a 70 year old tree falls in the woods, you not only hear it--you feel it thud to the ground.
